Tennis anyone? Pickleballers, badminton shuttlecock aficionados, and more were on hand for a great weather Friday for an information session and first look at the new outdoor courts in Kin Park.
Those attending the session discussed the aspects of the courts that they were pleased with, as well as the items they felt were missing or could be improved upon. In preparation for a grand opening ceremony in early summer of 2024, staff looked to the main user groups of this facility to guide them in bringing forward the final phase of this project to the 2024 budget.
Some of the key items brought forward at the engagement session were: amenities such as benches, walkways, waste cans, and access to washrooms and water, signage to encourage proper use of the facility such as no dogs on the court, cleaning off your shoes before entering and only parking along the north side of 110 Avenue, strategies for keeping the courts clean such as maintenance schedules, more wind screens and boot scrapers, and more.
